ROCK | Cello Fury


Utilizing a cellos-and-drums instrumentation, the Pittsburgh-based quartet Cello Fury combines classical virtuosity with head-bangin' rhythms and the kind of relentless energy you expect from your favorite metal bands. Boasting original compositions from its two albums, 2011 self-titled debut and 2013's "Symphony of Shadows," Cello Fury's sound is both brawny and brooding. The band — cellists Simon Cummings, Ben Muñoz, and Nicole Myers, and drummer David Throckmorton — will also be playing multiple "Outreach Concerts" at several local schools on Thursday and Friday, under the auspices of Young Audiences of Rochester.

Cello Fury will perform on Thursday, April 21, at Abilene Bar & Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. 8 p.m. $8-$10.;
